Spring Term 1- Britain Since 1945

Literacy

As a basis for our lessons this half term we will be linking our Literacy to our WW1 theme. 

  • Explore the novel 'The London Eye Mystery'
  • Write a diary entry linked to the novel
  • Write key scenes of the novel from different perspectives
  • Narratives on Literacy Shed Videos
  • Write descriptive settings

The children will also be taught a separate grammar lesson in the afternoons, as well as grammar being incorporated into daily literacy lessons.

 

Numeracy

Children are grouped for Numeracy lessons with work matched and targeted to stretch and further their understanding. Within the new curriculum, children are encouraged to 'master' new concepts before moving on to more challenging mathematical content. This will entail lots of problem solving and providing lots of opportunities for the children to apply basic skills and number facts in more abstract and puzzle based tasks. An overview of the area to be covered this half term can be found below:

  • factors, multiples and prime numbers
  • 2D and 3D shapes
  • to instantly recall times tables to 12x12 and know the related division facts
  • area,perimeter and volume
  • converting measures
  • angles

P.E and Games

In our P.E sessions this term the children will be participating in multi-skills sessions, as well as undertaking lots of fitness assessments.

Games sessions will be taught by Mr Cowling on Monday afternoons, so please ensure P.E. kits are in school.
